This week three out of my four munchkins started swimming lessons. The boys were nervous about this but Cali was all for it on day one but by the end of the week things had changed at least for the boys. Nelson at the end of the first day as we were leaving said "mommy I think they are planning on making me learn to swim." he said this with a pout on his face. Of course I thought this was funny. And i of course agreed with him. Through out the rest of the week the boys got a little bit more comfortable in the water, hopefully it stays that way for next week as well. Cali on the second day of swim lessons her instructor split the class in two. Two kids one of whom was Cali went with a different instructor. I wasn't quite sure why they did this but as I watched the two groups i got the impression it was because Cali and the other little boy were a lot more comfortable in the water and had the floating on their backs down. Anyway for the rest of the week they have spent a majority of their time swimming in the deep end. She has been teaching them different strokes and while they are far from perfect they are doing really well and I am impressed. I am really impressed with the boys as well because they are finally figuring out that learning to swim is not a bad thing.
This has been a great week and I look forward to seeing how next week plays out for them.
